For the 33rd year in a row, the Rockford Association for Minority Management celebrated young scholars, during the annual RAMM Scholars Banquet.
On hand to motivate the young scholars was keynote speaker, Dr. Marc Lamont Hill. Hill is one of the leading hip-hop generation intellectuals in the country. His work, which covers topics such as culture, politics, and education, has appeared in numerous journals, magazines, books, and anthologies. Dr. Hill has lectured widely and provides regular commentary for media outlets like NPR, Washington Post, Essence Magazine, and the New York Times. His words of encouragement and years of wisdom inspired not only the young scholars, but many who where there to support them.
Congratulations are in order for the following scholarship recipients:
